Graef Wine produces small-lot handcrafted wines harvested from sustainably farmed vineyards in Lake County, Solano County and Yountville-Napa AVAs.

Founded in 2011 with partners Dennis Dreith and Jo-Anne McGettrick, winemaker Andrew Graef couldn’t resist putting his name on a wine bottle and going commercial after a decade of making wine in his garage while working in the cellars of various boutique California wineries.

Critical to the process of making our wines, we value the relationship we have with talented growers dedicated to the resolute care of their vineyards. The extraordinary fruit we work with allows us to craft well balanced wines with minimal intervention to allow the distinct character of place to shine.

Nature meets magic! It’s about the relationship between soil and weather - call it farming - and the DNA of those that touch the fruit leading to the wine, poured from bottle to glass, as friends and family gather together over a good meal.

That’s how it started and the story continues.
